Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

Visitors looking for the scoop on this year's awards won't find much here -- focuses more on the Academy's history, resources, and programs. There are cool photos and video clips from events and exhibitions, but there's not much interactivity -- except for the Oscars Designer Challenge, which encourages visitors to select an evening gown for one of the night's award escorts. However, the site deserves a big round of applause for its Teacher's Guide series, which includes educational activities for aspiring filmmakers.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
